hi
i have ubuntu 8.04 and it's running vnc4server (set up based upon this how-to: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=122402&highlight=vnc)
it was working fine, until today afternoon, when it stopped working all of a sudden.
I can still connect to the pc with ultravnc viewer on a xp box, it even accepts my VNC password, but then i get the blackwhite checkerboard pattern and the "X" cursor, as if X couldn't start, and i can't get to the login screen.
as said, it was working earlier this day...

any ideas what could be wrong?
i don't find anything useful in the system logs.
